Description Hans de Goede 2001-03-11 16:43:34 UTC
Graphic upgrade: florence beta2 -> rc1 (I know unsupported, but that's not
the issue!)

Diskspace free:
/	200 Mb (Can't remeber exactly but somewhere above this)
/home  1000 Mb

-Upgrade fails with not enough disk space on /
-make some space on /
-continue with upgrade
-restore cleaned up files
-still 116 Mb free on /

-installer very likely place the installer image in /, while it should have
put it in /home

Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2001-03-12 16:26:37 UTC
Thanks for the report we will investigate.

Comment 2 Glen Foster 2001-03-12 19:40:50 UTC
This defect considered MUST-FIX (show-stopper) for Florence Gold

Comment 3 Matt Wilson 2001-03-14 15:54:36 UTC
change to vc2 and ls /mnt/sysimage/rhinstall-stage2.img and ls

it should place it on the partition with the most free space.

Comment 4 Hans de Goede 2001-03-15 11:46:54 UTC
Well, I've already done the upgrade, so should I just upgrade again to the same

Also when should I do that (where in the install process?)

Comment 5 Matt Wilson 2001-03-15 16:29:46 UTC
yes, I suppose upgrade again.  You would need to go to Ctrl+Alt+F2 during
package installation.

Comment 6 Hans de Goede 2001-03-16 08:55:56 UTC
Ehm, it never gets to package installation, or are you suggesting:
-make enough space on / for things to work
-do the upgrade to the same version
-check at ctrl + alt +  F2 ?

Comment 7 Matt Wilson 2001-03-16 16:41:56 UTC
just after it does the "transferring install image" part, switch and do the ls.

Comment 8 Michael Fulbright 2001-03-19 21:49:24 UTC
Were you able to get the information we requested?  We are getting near the
point we cannot fix bugs and would like to consider your report fully.

Comment 9 Hans de Goede 2001-03-20 12:13:21 UTC
Nope, I'll try yo get the info later today

Comment 10 Hans de Goede 2001-03-20 16:21:09 UTC
I just checked this, and the install image ends up in /home so thats good, but
that means that the space calculation for / was over 100 megs off *, is it very
conservative and / or is some temp space needed for other reasons?

* I have about 100 megs free on / after the upgrade but it complained it needed
8 megs more.

Anyways I think you can close this.

Comment 11 Michael Fulbright 2001-03-20 17:05:49 UTC
I'll pass the question of space calculation on to Matt.

Comment 12 Matt Wilson 2001-04-02 15:22:05 UTC
It's fairly conservative, but I've never seen it 100 mb off.
